Meet the project director

My name is Ben Wynne.  I am Head of Academic Liaison at the University of Leicester Library.  What does that mean you might well ask?  I am responsible for ensuring that we provide relevant and accessible information resources for the University’s research, learning and teaching and that our customers know what resources are available to them and that they are in a position to benefit from them.  To achieve this we have a team of librarians working with academic departments to keep in tune with their needs, support their students and researchers and develop our ‘collections’ (digital being a major focus, of course).

This project very much fits within that picture – and more broadly with the Library supporting the University’s role in the wider community.  This is a great opportunity to create the bases for a local history archive with our project partners.  As project director, one of my main responsiblities is to ensure that the structures and resources are there to enable those doing the real work – people like Ed as project manager – to make progress and achieve our objectives.
